§11 Changes to the Charter, Liquidation of the Association, Taking Effect
- Changes to the charter have to be announced as a topic on the agenda when calling for a General Assembly. Only a General Assembly specifically convened for the purpose of dissolving the association has the power to do so. Decisions about changes to the charter and the purpose of the association or the dissolution of the association have to be taken with a majority of three fourth of all votes casted.
- In the case the association has been completely liquidated or the charitable purposes have ceased to exist, all available assets of the association are to be handed over to Deutsche Umwelthilfe e.V., who is obliged to use the assets directly and exclusively for charitable purposes.
- The charter takes effect with the registration of the register of associations with the court-house.
